Marbled Christmas Ornament Project With Spray Paint

Easy

This ornament was purchased at Restoration Hardware (clearance) -- and I embellished it with this spray paint dip method for a book club ornament exchange.

Original (clearance) ornament from Restoration.

These glass ornaments work very well for this.

Wear gloves -- paint ahead!

Wear gloves to keep yourself cleaning during the marbling process.

Get a bucket & fill it about halfway with water.

Spray paint any colors you want. I used red...add sprays of white and silver too! Just spray them straight into the bucket of water.

Slowly submerge and swirl the ornament through the paint and water.

Here's the marbling!!

You can clean off the extra paint with a paper towel.

I suspended the ornament on a stick to fully dry. I slid the stick right through the hole at the top of the ornament.

Glitter in the sunshine!

Next I added some glitter in all different colors.

Spray on clear Krylon... sprinkle with glitter.

Here's what I bought at Michaels for embellishment.

Thread wires of pearls through hole at the top of the ornament.

Finished! Merry Christmas!

Here are the spray paints and finishes that I used.

On the tree!!!! :-)
